My husband eats a banana and cereal with blueberries almost every morning. I need more variety. When I wrote this, it was Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Even I can’t do that, as much as I love ice cream. But because I love breakfast foods (and him), I do like to shake it up a bit now and then.
I love that my husband so often is willing to forgo meals that feature hunks of flesh. He likes meat but is conscious of dietary recommendations and is glad to fill half his plate with fruits and vegetables.
I usually have at least a few cookbooks out from the library. They inspire me, entertain me and provide me with a stockpile of recipes to try. Checking out new cookbooks is also a good way to keep up with food trends. You’d think I’d have enough recipes by now, but I can’t seem to stop. . .
I am always on the lookout for a way to make the incredible sticky eggplant we had at Fujin chinese restaurant in Portland, Ore., on our honeymoon 18 years ago. It was dark, both sweet and savory, and just a little chewy, fried to perfection. To die for.
